LACBA-Langston-HBCU Program


The Los Angeles County Bar Association President’s Task Force on Racial and Social Justice, together with the John M. Langston Bar Association of Los Angeles and several other partnering organizations, is proud to launch a pilot program to prepare students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) for law school. 


This year, we have invited ten students from Morehouse College to attend a law school readiness program in Los Angeles, California during the week of June 12-19.   The program includes a daylong visit to Pepperdine Law School,  meetings and immersion programs with the  Los Angeles Superior Court, the District Attorneys’ Office, a luncheon and seminars sponsored by Munger Tolles & Olson, and a dinner with the African American Judges Association.  

The program also will include a long-term Mentoring Program to assist the students with the process of preparing for and applying to law school.

Please consider donating to the program.  We have a very generous donor who has already advanced over $5,000 for airline tickets for the students, but we need additional donations to support the program.  Your donations will be used to defray the direct costs associated with the program, including airfare, transportation, and meals for the students. 

Donations are being collected through California Change Lawyers, a 501(c)(3), and will be tax deductible.  Here's the link to our donation page.

Thank you for your support in diversifying the legal profession and investing in the next generation of diverse lawyers!
